BMI’s Brazil Defence & Security Report for Q1 2013 examines the current health and future prospects of
the country’s defence community, chiefly its armed forces and defence industry. So as to understand the
prospects and health of Brazil’s defence community, the report takes a multifaceted approach. It
examines the internal and external security challenges faced by the country, the modus operandi of
political defence decision-making, and how these decisions are transformed into military action. In
addition, it outlines the order of battle of the country’s armed forces, the respective sizes of the armed
forces, current defence procurement programmes and future anticipated acquisitions of military materiel.
Beyond this, the report also investigates Brazil’s growing defence industrial sector, particularly in the
realm of aerospace, and the impact that this defence industry could have in the domestic and international
context.
The report makes several key findings. Firstly, it notes that the country has a long-term objective to
become a major player in the global defence industry; both in Latin America, and abroad. Secondly, it
notes that Brazil is playing an increasingly important role vis-à-vis security both domestically and across
the wider region. This includes its relationships with its neighbours and its participation in international
peacekeeping missions. Fourthly, the Brazilian defence establishment is wedded to a long-term
programme of defence modernisation. This is focused on the replacement of obsolete platforms and
capabilities with new domestically produced and imported equipment.
Long term, Brazil sees itself as a global player both in terms of defence materiel provision and in terms of
operational participation. This is a trend that is unlikely to change over the next decade.
Over the last quarter BMI has made some additions to the Brazil Defence & Security Report. These have
included:
?? A detailed description of the chain of command of the Brazilian armed forces, and the country’s
grand strategy.
?? A full order of battle for the Brazilian army, air force and navy.
?? An update regarding the country’s defence budget for 2012.
?? A full description of the major procurement projects across the Brazilian army, air force and
navy.
